The Bitch Is Back!

"WP's halo losing its shine" by Chua Lee Hoong, Political Editor, ST, Published on Feb 2, 2012.

Since when does one put a halo on a political party? Call me naive but I thought halo only applies to saints or holy persons. Just to be sure, I checked the dictionary and found that "halo" also means "the aura of glory, veneration, or sentiment surrounding an idealized person or thing". I'm amazed that Ms Chua is capable of such veneration especially to the Workers' Party. From her past writings, I would have thought that she reveres PAP more.

The piece in italic by Ms Chua took half a page of ST. I'll just stick my thoughts [FMTTF] in between the italics.

Extracted from Straits Times:

"Nine months ago, in the eyes of many Singaporeans hungry for political rebalancing, the Workers’ Party (WP) could do no wrong.
It had romped home to victory in Aljunied GRC, breaking the ruling party’s monopoly on Group Representation Constituencies for the first time since the latter were created in 1988, and toppling two ministers and one senior minister of state in the process. 
It had brought into Parliament the first opposition candidate with credentials to rival the best from the People’s Action Party (PAP) – Mr Chen Show Mao, top lawyer with an international law firm, former national top student, effectively bilingual, as adept in Tang dynasty history as in corporate law. 
Its presence in Parliament included four energetic chaps in their 30s – Mr Pritam Singh, Mr Gerald Giam, Mr Muhamad Faisal Abdul Manap and Mr Yaw Shin Leong – bringing with them the promise of new blood in opposition ranks, ready to ensure that ageing veterans like Mr Low Thia Khiang would have successors at the ready. 
When Parliament sat in November, for the first time after the general election, all eyes were on the WP team – and while they could not be said to be spectacular, they did not disappoint either.
The WP MPs made speeches that contained thoughtful points reflecting concerns close to Singaporeans, whether relating to education, business, Chinese language or freedom of information."

FMTTF: Pardon my sexy thoughts, the art of foreplay before the fook is very well executed here.

"But then came the new year, and a new sitting of Parliament, and this time, it seemed as if the WP was in self-destruct mode.
The ministerial pay debate that took place two weeks ago could have been the WP’s star turn – an opportunity for it to show that it had a principled approach to the subject, had thought through all options and implications, and had done its homework thoroughly.
Instead, over the three days of debate, which I watched from start to finish, the WP’s deficiencies became painfully clear.
‘If this is a First World Parliament, I want none of it,’ I muttered wearily to a colleague at the end of the three days."

FMTTF: Inability to get it up or ejaculating too fast, if Chua wants none of it, lesser mortals may just bear with it. Surprisingly, her perception of WP's deficiency is exactly what I thought of PAP's inadequacy and shortfall in the Ministerial Salary Debate. PAP's hubristic belly aching on ministers' sacrifice [Link] and wanting to be put on a pedestal either make you cringe or, worse, puke. And we thought PAP with the tea sessions had all the studs!

"To recap, a ‘First World Parliament’ was what the WP campaigned on in the May General Election.
Its manifesto proclaimed the WP’s aim to ‘form the government’ in the long term, and among other things, declared that ministerial pay should be benchmarked to that of leaders in developed countries.
Calls for transparency were made five times in the manifesto, on matters ranging from crime information and defence to Central Provident Fund money and immigration statistics.
Yet during the ministerial pay debate – and in the days after – the WP has been unwilling and unable to explain its changing stances on ministerial pay.
It has had three positions in five years – pegging to foreign leaders’ pay, pegging to income of the bottom 20 per cent of Singaporeans, and most recently, pegging to the MX9 salary scale in the civil service."

FMTTF: In three positions or one (or 'missionary' or a '69'), why on earth is it a sin for WP to change it's stance on ministerial pay and not a sin for PAP to do the same? If not for PAP's Lee Hsien Loong wanting to adjust his $millions (and hopefully win more votes in the next election), this debate would not have taken flight in the first place. The silliness in this argument make me wonder how often PAP and their 'blind faith' supporters want to enjoy the masochism of shooting their own feet!

"The WP’s key leaders, Mr Low and Ms Sylvia Lim, have steadfastly refused to comment on the subject. It has been left to Mr Gerald Giam, the 34-year-old Non-Constituency MP, to front the WP’s latest position.
Some say that is because Mr Giam, a one-time civil servant, is the key champion of the new formula. But that begs the question: Why the shift from the earlier positions? There is no logical connect between each of the three positions, unlike the formulation by the Committee to Review Ministerial Salaries which was essentially a widening of an existing base of top earners in Singapore."

FMTTF: The fact that Mr Low and Ms Sylvia Lim need not comment on the issue shows how steady and confident they are of their newly elected MPs and NCMP. Their steadfastness in letting their members bleed and going through the baptism of fire shows there is hope yet for 1st World Parliament in Singapore. So unlike the mollycoddling of MPs of the other party.

"That lack of transparency on the issue of ministerial pay extends into a more recent saga involving the WP – the Yaw Shin Leong affair.
The 35-year-old MP for Hougang, widely billed as Mr Low’s protege in the run-up to last year’s election, is now the subject of screaming tabloid headlines across Singapore for an alleged extramarital affair with another married party member.
Mr Yaw and all WP leaders have declined to comment on the allegations.
There are two distinct issues here – the behaviour of a public figure, a Member of Parliament, and the evasiveness of a party that has the declared aim of forming the government.
Which carries more weight depends on your personal beliefs, but neither should be a trivial matter."

FMTTF: Aaah . . . so here's the climax! The sting on the moral behaviour of alleged extramarital affair of Yaw Shin Leong and the frustration of some in not getting any comment from WP leaders and Yaw. Rumour especially on sex sells. However if rumour is what makes news and Ms Chua wishes to dig deeper, I humbly suggest that she visit this blog [Link] and expand on the "allegations" made on the power that is further. Maybe not.  Lord Acton said in 1887: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." Bully the the less endowed but never mess with those who have or are connected!

"Back during the hustings last year, the WP was embroiled in a much-publicised battle of words with the PAP as to whether it was a ‘spare tyre’, or ‘co-driver’, or more.
To disarm voters wary of a freak election result in which a party other than the PAP is returned to power, it proclaimed itself as aiming to be no more than a ‘spare tyre’, kept in reserve in case of emergency.
It wanted no more than to be a constructive opposition, it said, and to keep the PAP Government on its toes.
Fine words, lofty aims. But once again, there’s a disconnect that needs to be explained, for its own manifesto makes clear it wants to be more than a spare tyre.
The third paragraph in the manifesto’s introduction says: ‘The WP’s long-term aim is to form the government. While in opposition, we will promote parliamentary democracy by seeking the people’s mandate to be elected Members of Parliament, so that we can call the government to account at the national level.’
The way the WP is going now, it is a long way from being in a position to form the government. Indeed, at the moment, it is the WP itself that needs to be called to account."

FMTTF: If manifesto of political parties shines like halo, let's take a look the "true" manifesto of PAP [Link]. If WP needs to be called to account, with the shambles of transportation woes, overcrowding population, flood, alleged corruption of Narco and SCDF Chiefs, is there not a need to ask of PAP  to be called to account too? Fair is fair. It been a while since I read any political comments from either of the Chua sisters of ST.

Yeah, the Bitch is Back and I'm glad to be reminded by Elton John here in the 1970's [Video Link] and lately at Las Vegas [Video Link].

I did a mental "middle finger up her private parts" when I read the article.

Makes me more determined to convert the 60% over to the cause. Starting right now.

Thank you for the rebuttal. Wish I can write it out than think about it.

It makes me sick when I read her articles. I guess she like the feeling of being a "ball-carrier".

Am I glad she is a journalist instead of in the ISD. Just imagine what can happen in the middle of the night to netizens. The usual baying from the pigs (Animal Farm). Just ignore the noise.

I dont understand why you people still bother at all to buy the Shit Times, read its propaganda and contribute to these journalee's bonuses.

The best way is not to patronise SPH's business, digital or old media.

Whether yor feel like your blood is boiling or very annoyed just reading the caption of her anti oppositon article,

we Singaporeans have every right to be angry with the State media.

Thank you very much for speaking up.

We must speak up for a free media, freed from PAP shackles in a
co-ordinated, sustained and united effort that permeates through out all level of our society.

Why the unresonaable insistance that the SPH must helm by PAP member who must be a ex - cec member.

This is Singapore remember

Make a list of all sensitive positions that will require the office holder to declare his political party affiliations.

e.g. Managing Director of MAS, Head of Civil Service etc.

Chua Lee Hoong, Political Editor, ST

Surely Ms Chua should declare her political party membership affiliations.
Since she is Political Editor.
To ensure transparency.

Thanks FMTTF and the link that I came to realise....


I hope WP bear in mind about this SHANMUGAM AFFAIR episode so that PAP dare not use Yaw as target in the coming month or worse next election to buy vote. Always shout, SHANMUGAM HAS AFFAIR all the way to the voting station come 2016 if PAP were to play dirty. Remember!

IN a ROBUST DEMOCRACY there is no place for the STATE MEDIA.

This is a authoritarian trait which can ALSO be found in a COMMUNIST and ONE-PARTY CONTROLLED regime namely..

The STATE MEDIA is the stumbling block, its eradication could be key for the reaching to all voters by the non-pap political parties.
